"First playable" milestone of Fable 2 sent to MGS

Sam Vantilburgh, a developer at Lionhead Studios, the company behind Fable 2, recently updated his blog with an interesting status update of Fable 2. Apparently the Lionhead team sent its first "milestone" into Microsoft Game Studios.

OMG Fable 1 was an awesome game. Yes, it was a bit easy and the combat was too simple, however, I do believe that Fable 2 will be awesome. It's not just about difficulty level of a game, it's about the entire experience. I think Fable 1 had a lot going for it and it was good, although short.

I kept going back and forth about whether or not I should buy it. I didn't, but if its any good I still will. Would you recommend a purchase?

frostbite066343d ago

definately pick it up. Its not that long, but it will hook you until you finish. Plus you can easily get the game for $10 now.

Capt CHAOS6344d ago

Yes, it was pretty good. My son has gone back to playing it on the 360 (he's 13).
I played the original to completion, which I've not done for many games..

The 7 Best Xbox 360 Games - Console Exclusives Win the Day

The Xbox 360 was a fantastic console in its day with some truly classic titles, but what are the seven best games for the console?

DrDoomer80d ago

I'm pretty used to these lists being bad, but this one is particularly s#ite.

raWfodog80d ago

I think Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon should have been added to the list.

BrainSyphoned80d ago

I'll go with,
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Culdcept Saga, Shadow Complex, Ace Combat 6 with the flight stick,A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings.
Bonus Kinect Games: Happy Action Theater and Sesame Street.
*Skyrim was so bad on PS3 that it almost deserves to be #1*

Husker42c80d ago

I really loved Shadow Complex.

P_Bomb80d ago

Ah yes, Shadow Complex! Good indies back in the day. Summer of Arcade. I enjoyed Trials Evolution as well.

DeusFever80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

Was this made by a.i.? No human being would put Shadowrun, Fable III, and Splinter Cell: Conviction into a list of the 7 best Xbox 360 games.

Abnor_Mal80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

Would love to play Ace Combat6 on PlayStation, but Xbox decided to buy exclusivity and keep it off a competing platform.

The only mainline game I never played except for one level at a friends place. Game sold less than any other in the series if I remember correctly.

darthv7280d ago

360 had Namco hitters AC6 and RR6... both quality titles. You should at least bust out the 360 for AC6 if you can score the flight stick. Its great.

Hofstaderman80d ago

When the current gen XBOX offering is so lacking people need to refer to games released two generations back....

Profchaos79d ago (Edited 79d ago )

It's a nostalgia peice same reason we get thousands of YouTube videos on sega genisis. Something people have fond memories for but the era is long gone.

It's xboxs golden year imo it was their genisis years the time where they stuck it to the market leaders Sony.

BehindTheRows79d ago

They stuck nothing. Sony screwed themselves giving Xbox an opening. They would have gotten the usual smack down if the PS3 had launched at $399 and was easier to develop for.

Fable II - A Fantasy Series at Peak Performance

Fable II launched back in 2008 and remains the best the series has offered. Ahead of the series comeback, it's time to look at the classic.

Crows90244d ago

They gotta bring back those gargoyles!

Dudeson244d ago

I'd love to play it again, this time on pc though. Forever waiting on that pc port.

GaboonViper244d ago

Loved this game, oh and i always saved my dog at the end, hope the new Fable has a animal companion.

got_dam244d ago

Fable 2 was the best inthe series. Peter waaaaaaay over promised with fable 1 and it was good but disappointing. He didn't go crazy eith hype for the second game and it was surprisingly awesome. Then he ran his mouth promoting 3 and it was the worst of the 3.

cthulhucultist243d ago

Funny story: Fable 3 had a funny way of keeping the promises you made in the first half of the game and having enough money to defeat the darkness.

You only had to collect enough money to buy 2 stores in a busy market district. You then raise the prices to maximum and you turn xbox 360 internal clock 99 or more years ahead.

The next time you load the game, all the rents from the 99 years are collected immediately.

But yes I agree that 3 was the weakest of the three.

Demetrius243d ago

I only got to play it once 😩 I'm so tempted to buy a Xbox 360 slim but planning on getting the series x soon since I got a PS5 in February Im ready to get saints row 1&2 back, GTA 4, fable 2, but I also want to play infamous 1&2 again Sony screwed us over with the stream only for saints row 2 and other gems smh

Dragon Quest 11 isn't even the best Dragon Quest game, it's a good game, but not the best. Dragon Quest 8 is superior to it in almost every way.
